Updating Books: Electronic Publishing

Leave a comment

During these challenging economic times, there are many industries that are asking the question “What can we do to remain relevant, move with the times, survive and even grow?” I have no involvement in it, but I consider for example, how my family’s business that was established in 1902, in the building trades, is addressing these questions and finding viable answers.

A few weeks ago, I came across a book called “Built to Last: Successful Habits of Visionary Companies.” The publication is a good resource for entrepreneurs and already established companies who are searching for clues during these volatile times. The book published in 1998,some nine or ten years prior to the beginning of this current recession, may not last if they do not update their vision for selling it. I’m taking the publisher of this book to task. It is not available in e-book format!

Could the publishers of “Built to Last” be reluctant to put much faith in electronic publishing? They’ve not moved with the times. Whether they are aware of it or not, publishing has gone through dramatic change over the past ten years, E-books and independent publishing has been the answer to sustainability.

Many books, previously available only in print, are now being offered in a new format of an electronic publication. Here are a few e-books that may open your eyes to doing business in this new era:

  • Primal Leadership: Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence
  • Strengthen your Business in a Recession: Build a Stronger Business for Success
  • Visionary Business: An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Success 

Like I tell all our  independent publishing clients, “Business promotion is no longer just doing  grunt work  on  paper – electronic media and promotion is essential. In order to be visible,  digital content  on the internet is a must .  Authors, remember it is not just about writing the book, promotion and sales are a part of it. Independent publishing is a business. For more information on tht subject here is an article.

Are you an author, publisher or business person who has not stepped forward into the new era of promotion through e-commerce and e-marketing? A specialist in that field can help you with that!
